Yossi Sassi & The Oriental Rock Orchestra‘s new album Hear And Dare is now Available, and an Album release show has been announced! The band has released their new digital album which is now available on Bandcamp, Spotify and Apple Music!
Yossi stated: “Our new release with ten brand new tracks, is available today at all common downloads & streaming services, along with CDs, shirts et cetera. This album is our homage to music and musicians, and the rare moments of synergistic creativity that they share. It was recorded in between Lockdowns, in Black Rock Studios, a top notch studio on the Island of Santorini, Greece, where the Orchestra members had to learn the music on the island itself. Waking up without mobile phones nor schedule, learning songs on the balcony and recording in front of the Mediterranean sea. It was a blissful and unique experience, which we feel truly reflects in the result! We hope this music makes you feel and react, hear and dare to go beyond!”
Hear And Dare Tracklist:
The Mind Spirit

The special Hear And Dare album release show in Tel Aviv will take place on May 12th!
